The Riva is the main promenade of the city of Split. I like it because on one side you can see the walls of Split and Diocletian's Palace, full of small shops and bustling activity, while on the other you can see the harbor with pleasure craft and ferries going to the nearby islands. This is where people go to have an ice cream, but all day you'll only see tourists here: the locals know that the heat is just too much to come here for a walk! There are lots of restaurants here with outdoor seating and while none of them offer cheap food, the quality is good. Go downtown if you're just after a slice of pizza: here you'll find white linen tablecloths and silver cutlery.
